At 6-foot-2, Jaren Sina is listed as one of the top point guard in the class of 2013.
The one-time Alabama commit made a new decision on Monday evening, publicly announcing his intentions to head to Northwestern for the 2012-13 season.
Sina, a native of New Jersey, currently attends the Gill St. Bernard’s School.
During the course of his recruitment, not only at first, but also his second go around since de-committing from Alabama, Sina had been receiving plenty of attention from a number of schools, including local Seton Hall and Rutgers.
Rated as the No. 75 overall prospect by ESPN, Sina gives plenty of hope to Northwestern looking forward.
As it is well-known around the college basketball world, the Wildcats’ program has never qualified for the NCAA Tournament in its existence.
After knocking on the door in each of the past few years, Northwestern faltered late and found themselves on the outside, looking in on numerous occasions.
Head coach Bill Carmody who was retained this past season after early speculation about his job security, has to be thrilled to land a top-level guard like Sina.
Prior to his decision, Sina considered a number of school including Seton Hall, Rutgers, Butler, Alabama, Cincinnati, Memphis, Miami (FL), St. John’s, and Virginia, among others.
